Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Effects of Climate Change and Biodiversity on Experimental Seagrass Ecosystems

Apply by: 2020-02-09

Type of employment: fixed-term employment, two years
Extent: 100 %
Location: Department of Marine Sciences, Tjärnö
First day of employment: Date/as soon as possible or upon agreement

The Department of Marine Sciences at the University of Gothenburg invites applications for a Post Doctoral Researcher to work on the effects of biodiversity on the responses of experimental seagrass ecosystems to fluctuating environmental drivers and marine climate change.

Project description

We seek a skilled and dedicated Postdoctoral research fellow to advance and develop experimental research into the effects of intras-specific genetic diversity on the resilience of simplified seagrass mesocosms to simulated climate change and environmental fluctuations. This work is funded by FORMAS, the Swedish Research Council for Sustainable Development, and is part of a larger project comprising parallel initiatives in Finland (Åbo) and Norway (Tromsø). Specifically, the project will: i) quantify the effects of intraspecific genetic diversity on the resilience of model seagrass ecosystems to both abiotic and biotic stressors, and; ii) investigate how naturally fluctuating future climates influence that relationship.

Job assignments

The successful applicant will work in close collaboration with senior researchers at the Tjärnö Marine Laboratory as well as other researchers and PI’s within the broader international project. The postdoc will primarily be responsible for refining, developing, and running mesocosm experiments, sampling protocols and programs, data-analysis and writing manuscripts. The work will be based at the Tjärnö Marine Laboratory at the University of Gothenburg outside Strömstad (https://loven.gu.se/english), but may also include field and/or laboratory work at partner sites in Finland and northern Norway.
